§ 2. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many resolutions he has received protesting against the recently introduced Merchandise Marks Bill, and otherwise criticising it, from chambers of commerce or committees thereof, cham- 1821 bers of trade or committees thereof, and other similar bodies, in addition to the resolutions he has received from Liverpool, London, Manchester, and Bristol; and what action he proposes to take in the matter?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
I have received no resolution from Bristol. Apart from the resolutions received from Liverpool, London and Manchester to which the hon. and gallant Member refers, I have received about a dozen resolutions, almost all of which, however, are directed towards strengthening the Bill. I may add that at their annual meeting last week the Association of British Chambers of Commerce passed a resolution approving the general principles of the Bill.
